USWNT vs. Nigeria, 2015 World Cup: Lineups and match thread

Guess who's back...

Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

The United States against Nigeria in the last Group D game for both teams.

With Cameroon winning earlier in the day the U.S. has clinched a berth in the knockout rounds of the 2015 Women's World Cup. That doesn't mean this match should be taken lightly. If the USWNT finish second in the group they will be matched up with Brazil in the Round of 16. That's not something we want at all.

Jill Ellis has made three changes to the lineup that drew against Sweden. Alex Morgan returns from injury and gets, remarkably, her first ever World Cup starting nod. Abby Wambach will partner her up top replacing the dynamic Christen Press. The final change sees Tobin Heath come in for Morgan Brian and will be deployed on the right flank. Will she be the answer the the U.S.' struggling wing play?

United State lineup: Solo, Krieger, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Klingenberg; Rapinoe, Lloyd, Holiday, Heath, Morgan, Wambach

The match begins at 8 p.m ET and you can see it live on big FOX. Watch it for America. And Soccer. But mostly America.
